Choosing the best Catering Company for your wedding
One thing we all need for our weddings is food. Back in the day when things were simpler people would have friends and family bring meals for the reception. I personally like this method since it seems more inclusive and personal. In fact for my wedding we did this very thing. We brought in certain foods and then had other parts prepared. It was a nice combination.
However in this day and age no one really cooks anymore. Also many don’t want to saddle anyone with that type of work when you just want them to be there and enjoy the day.
This leaves the advantage a catering company brings you. Catering companies have been around for centuries in various fashion. Sometimes it was just a group of people who worked for a certain lord or kingdom. There is evidence though of some companies working for others for big events.
Today it is much more sophisticated of course. Personal chefs, hired staff, linens and small burners.
How you choose a catering company depends on just a few things.
1. Meet the owner
When you meet the owner you will right away find out if they are full of fluff or they know what they are talking about. They should have no problem showing their facility and how it operates. They should have samples and demonstrations. They should have a clean company grounds with well lit kitchens. If you find they are lacking in this area then I would check other ones out.
2. Check their reviews
Checking their reviews is a given as well. This will tell you all you need to know about all their previous clients. Make sure to note how recent the reviews are. If they are older than 3 months I would be wary because they may have stopped sending clients to their review platform because they have something to hide.
We really want to stay in our budgets and splurge on that beautiful dress. Yet when it comes to eating, this is what everyone remembers and talks about for years after.
The price should be reasonable and in addition to glowing reviews will allow you to make that decision. The old saying, you get what you pay for rings true here. If you just want cheap food then just buy pre-made food at a grocery store and warm it up in the microwave.
It pays to get the best.
